MARK YOUR CALENDARS NOW!

EFA OPEN STUDIOS 2013

“Meet the artists. Witness the process. See where art is created.”

Thursday October 24th(tomorrow!)

6-10pm Opening Reception

One of my favorite all around good times perusing contemporary art and mingling with the artists who make it. Opening night is not to be missed! Highlighting some handpicked favs below but don’t let that stop you from checking out all the artists.

David Greg Harth (people call him “Harth”)

Studio # 711

You never know what Harth will be giving away for free. One year it was hearts – real ones!!! This year it will be limited edition drawings. Remember to ask for one.  While in his studio check out his Holy Bible Projecttrade on his “I AM” stamped currency with different messages, or sign up for his photo booth project-Every Person I Know And Every Person I Don’t Know.

Noah Klersfeld

Studio # 507

Noah is an artist and an architect. I stumbled upon his studio about a year ago and was quite intrigued by his videos of geometric images pulsating across the screens. Sweet man, mesmerizing work. Look for the dark studio(videos running = less light needed) with an image projected on the wall opposite his studio entrance.

Toyin Odutola 

Studio #412

Odutola has been a hot topic of late in the arts with her pen and ink black portraitures. I believe she is a recent addition to the EFA studios. Lucky us! You certainly don’t want to miss this opportunity to meet her and see her work up close and personal.
